The Falcon Banner has posted a new item, '[Announcements] Request for
Comments - Hate Ban Language

The Board of Directors is seeking commentary on the following policy
proposal regarding hate speech and hate symbols.

Advice is additionally being sought on whether to place this proposed
amendment in (1) Corpora, which governs the SCA as a whole, including all
kingdoms and Affiliates, or (2) the Corporate Policies, which govern only
the Society for Creative Anachronism, Inc., not the Affiliates.


*The SCA bars the use of hate speech and hate symbols.  The use of such
will be sanctioned. The SCA notes that not all offensive speech is hate
speech and recommends that the dispute resolution process be applied in
matters of suspected hate speech.*

*Hate speech is not tolerated in the Society.  Please report any instances
of hate speech to your Kingdom Seneschal, the Society Seneschal or the
President immediately.  For more information about hate speech and the
reporting of same, please refer to the Bullying and Harassment Policy,
which can be found in the Seneschal’s Handbook.*
